Old love

twisted and folded
gaps where we’re weathered
rust and mould and heart and soul
stubborn togetherness
far down the road
collections of stories
libraries of kinds of love
part and parcel of what we were told
about growing old and the rush of gold
your hands feel rough
I can see through your eyes
I see the lines on my face
so many lines
shaped by only one life
